Neurosurgical Training Simulator-Rowena

Realistic Operative Workstation For Educating Neurosurgical Apprentices

About The Simulator - Rowena

Designed by a practising neurosurgeon, Rowena a high fidelity product designed fo Neurosurgical Training Simulation. The simulator is available in both adult and paediatric variants for the teaching of basic neurosurgical techniques and approaches in conjunction with common surgical instrumentation.

With the recent widespread changes in medical training and career structure the exposure to operative surgery has, generally, been dramatically decreased. Furthermore, many national training bodies have decreed that simulation should be an intergral part of all surgical training programmes.

Neurosurgery has definitely lagged behind other specialities in this regard, in part due to the lack of suitable simulators. This is what we have set out to rectify.

The Realistic Operative Workstation for Educating Neurosurgical Apprentices (Rowena) is essentially a durable head base, featuring face, neck  ears etc, and with accurate internal skull base anatomy.


On top of this is fixed a realistic cranium consisting of the skull vault (with accurate vascular markings in the realistically textured bone), overlying scalp layer, and underlying dura (complete with vascular markings). These latter 2 both ‘peel away’ from the bone with a realistic degree of adherence.

Within the skull vault  is an equally realistic ‘brain’, containing a fluid filled ventricular system for more advanced simulations.

Both the cranial vault and the brain are essentially ‘consumables’ which can be inexpensively replaced once they have been ‘operated upon’ to destruction. The head base on the other hand is the permanent part.

There are no ferrous metal components making it suitable for both CT and MRI scanning so a very wide variety of procedures and operations can be simulated from head positioning to image guided ventricular catheter placement.
